From the Isle of Music plans special test

The following is of special interest to DXers in Russia and neighboring countries:

On Sunday, February 26, from 1500-1600 UTC,  From the Isle of Music, a program dedicated to Cuban music, will be broadcast in a special test transmission on shortwave using Spaceline, 9400 kHz, from Kostinbrod, Bulgaria using an array especially suited for reception in Russia.   If the test and a subsequent one are successful, we may use this to improve access to the program for listeners in Russia and neighboring countries.

 We will be continuing on Channel 292 and WBCQ for their target areas regardless of the outcome of the tests on Spaceline.

I will be monitoring an SDR near Moscow but would appreciate any and all reception reports.
